Traditional Patio Ideas and Inspirations

We've put together a collection of patios that we hope will inspire you to create something a bit special.

This natural stone patio was designed and built with the garden very much in mind. The owner has successfully created an untamed, rugged look. Natural stone is hard to beat if that is the effect you are looking for.

Notice how a lot of thought has gone into the choice of furniture to make sure it also adds to the theme.

By adding the circle design to this brick paver patio the owner has added a focal point to what otherwise might have appeared a "boring" patio due to its size. Wherever you entered the patio from your eyes would naturally be led to the pattern. You can buy these patterns with the brick pavers ready cut.

Again the choice of furniture matches well with the brick pavers.

A stand alone patio again done in brick pavers with a concrete edging and finished off with some colored gravel. A stand alone patio is ideal if the area immediately to the back of your home is shaded during the afternoons.

A worry would be the lack of shade although a large parasol or perhaps a gazebo would soon remedy this.

Another stand alone patio but this time with a path leading to it.

It has been formed from concrete and blends well with its surroundings. The tree will provide some welcome shade while at the same time giving the patio area a cozy feel.


A great example of an outdoor living room. Includes outdoor cooker with worktops for preparing food, a patio bar and lots of seating for guests.
